Stay away from pre-71 shows they mostly are pretty basic and may be a turnoff to you....try stuff from 77-79 (when the sound was epic) and 87-91

Pre-71 shows Basic?? No way, that is some good stuff. They were very experimental and had a connection with the audience then. Phil states in his book that by 71, the mental telepathy between band and audience had been drastically cut back. There are some great shows pre-71.
Plus, if you ignore pre-71, you miss the great Viola Lee Blues...

2/18/71 is great, a lot of "firsts"
9/19/70 has a great Dark Star, as mentioned earlier
4/21/69 - introduced as "some guys from the west coast" and gets a small round of applause, by the end of Viola Lee Blues, the audience is really revved-up.

also 5/8/77 at Cornell is one of their best... (IMHO)

peace

What exatcly is a touch head?is it someone who likes the band post 87?Someone that likes the newer songs from post 87?Thats me man.Im guilty.I am a huge fan of "Touch of Grey" "Standing on the moon","Days between","Foolish heart","Throwing stones","So many Roads", etc....Your going to tell me im not a real "deadhead",get the fuck out of here you scumbag. I forgot about more shows that you and your crew have ever come close to seeing,and thats a reality.....im a huge fan of the actual Band.So if you think that one of their songs was better because it was the "first time played" as you put it,your fucking out of your mind.Take that stupid deadbase shit and shove it up your ass....i get a good laugh to at the dude that said the band and audience had "telepathy" going.What exactly does that mean?Are you trying to tell me that they could read each others minds?Like witchcraft or some shit?Do me a favor and think about that statement for a minute,and maybe you will realize how absurd you sound...again,the sound and chords and solos are WAY more basic pre-71,and i think the new guy would love Some MSG 89.

Not to get into an argument at all, but I was quoting Phil from "Search for the Sound" Those were his words, not mine. So if you have a problem with it, please take it up with Phil.

Also, I too like some of the later shows, I saw them in Philly in '87 at the spectrum and it was mind blowing...

However, my point was that to tell someone that pre 71 might turn them off is wrong.

One of the gems off of Archive, imho, is the Viola Lee Blues rehearsal from '66. To listen to them work on this song is a nice look at the behind the scenes working of this awesome band.

Hey BobP - Just leave it at that. Tito has no ears, for music or people.

Oh yeah...and I agree. 71 is a GREAT starter year. Compact arrangements w/ripping sound and primal guitars. MMMMMMM.

There are find in all periods. At first I didn't like the organ from the early years but I'm not now always in the mood for a 46 minute Playing in the Band.

1968 has some great stuff, esp Aug-Oct, and has song selection and a concentrated electricity that other years don't. Check out The Other One on 8-21

And I like 1985 though people I know don't so much. I like June esp, and was just listening to Space:

I had no motives of aggregating a fight between fine dead heads as yourselves, but all of shows that have been recommended so far have been fantastic. Is there a specific version of "Space" that you guys think is best? Just kind of curious on this, but was there a reason it seems that in the 70's the Dead started playing less of songs like St.Steven & Ramble on Rose & Ripple?

Back in the early 1950's the government and the FBI were working on a top secret experiment called "Tito&Smokey." It was trial and error, mostly error.
You may know of it in it's more common name: birth control.

Uhhhhh, actually Tito, the first time you ever responded to one of my posts you were talking shit to me. I know, I know. I'm not special, you talk shit to every one. But that goes right along with you always being the victim right Tito? Everybody picks on poor, poor Tito for no reason at all. Here is your reply to one of my posts of a joke that I thought was funny.

Here's the link just so you know I'm not making shit up.

I personally have no idea what you're talking about Tito. People say to me, "hey, check out the big brain on Joe" all the time.

Whether you found it funny or not, what was the purpose of bringing up the level of my intelligence?
So you started talking shit to me for absolutely no reason at all. By your definition, doesn't that make you a punk, for real?

Yeah, unfortunately Tito is exactly that. He really thrives off of hatred. It can't be a healthy way to live. But, I really get a kick out of responding to him with reasoning. I don't think he knows what to do with himself.
